An Excellent cumulative project reviewing:
•Sample Groups (random or convenient)
•Data collection (surveys, measurement)
•Displaying data in table, graphs, and charts
•Calculating mean, median, mode, and range
•Outliers and biases
Students work in small groups to answer a question of their choosing. They must define their target population and then select a random or convenient sample group. Once the data is collected, they must find the mean, median, mode, and range of the data in order to answer the original answer. Groups must determine if there are any outliers or biases affecting their overall conclusions. Each group will create a poster displaying their findings. They will then present to the class. Finally, they will complete peer/group evaluations. Everything you need (worksheets, rubrics, peer evaluations, example projects) are included!!
I love hanging the posters around the school. Many of the students/teachers participated in the data collection process so they are anticipating the BIG REVEAL of riveting answers!
